Sis will be found in our memories and dreams for decades to come. She was the most remarkable person and such a loving, giving, and teaching sister, daughter, friend, wife, mother and grandmother. We were blessed to have her for 55 years and if by chance heaven wasn’t blessed before it truly is now. I love you Cheryl and I will miss you until you show me the way home
